Fall Quilt Market 2011: Cloud 9 – Happy Drawing by Ed Emberley

In the first post I mentioned how Cloud9 is growing. Not only are they moving in to bona fide headquarters soon, they have a new partnership with the legendary artist Ed Emberley. He formed (at least) an entire generation of artists with his drawing books, so I can’t be more excited to see him on fabric. The first — and hopefully not the only — collection is based on The Drawing Book of Animals (above). Happy Drawing by Ed Emberley will be out in February 2012, and includes a craft panel complete with suggestions for use in Emberley’s hand. I love the scribbles coordinate and how it looks like a white polka dot from afar.

    Such nostalgia! I loved the Ed Emberley books growing up – I can’t wait to see the fabrics in person! This group’s on my watchlist, for sure.
